What you'll do

Explore the superb legacy that the colonial British left in the hills of Penang. Until today, Penang’s waterworks are among the best in the country. The jungle trail will lead hotel guests upwards to the Batu Feringghi dam and an aqueduct, which is among the few which are still working till today, and end with a refreshing swim in the Batu Ferringhi river. Suitable for families with children, the duration of this hike is 3 hours, including the swim.

There are many hiking trails in Penang. I am one hiker who explores trails without GPS. This way I have explored dozens and dozens of trails including many not marked on any map (a book of my hikes will be released in 2020) and many are unknown even to seasoned hikers. I'll bring you to a wonderful and very unspoiled and unseen part of Penang's jungle. Trails can be as short as 2 hours and as long as 10-12, I have walked them all. Wild life as tortoises, giant black squirrels, wild boar, snakes, monitor lizards, langur monkeys, scorpions, huntchman spiders and many more might cross our path. You haven't seen Penang without seeing the jungle and the orchards.

More tips

Shorts and t-shirt are sufficient. Walking or sport shoes (no sandals). I advise to bring a small camera (cell phone would do), big cameras might be damaged. As our hike starts at a small Indian restaurant this is also a good place to enjoy a small lunch afterwards.
